ESPA plays a big part in my bedtime routine– from their gorgeous Overnight Hydration Therapy mask to the divine Muscle Rescue Balm (£30), which never fails to soothe. I was then thrilled to be sent their new Sleep Experience (£30) set to try, combining travel-sized favourites in one calming bundle.
Comprising Overnight Hydration Therapy, Tri-Active Advanced Night Booster, Soothing Bath Oil and Soothing Body Oil, these beauties are packaged in a classic zip-up bag. I can’t stress enough how much ESPA helps me, and their Muscle Rescue Balm has been a million times more effective on aches and pains than any anti-inflammatory gels.
The restorative balm instantly relieves and has become an essential staple, particularly on dodgy days. Its eucalyptus elements are super relaxing, while clove bud and West Indian Bay oils work alongside to warm and add extra special healing power. Sporting an extremely sore wrist at the moment because of an inflammatory flare-up, this has honestly been a lifesaver.
Bedtime is clearly a time to unwind, and after I’ve forced myself to stick my phone in a drawer, the sleep set comes calling. Ahhh.
Popping the sandalwood, geranium and more blend into my bath, I then breathe in peace while decompressing a little. After the bath, matching body oil keeps the momentum going. Getting between (hopefully freshly laundered) sheets, I like to double up and pop some Tri-Active Advanced Night Booster on, followed by my beloved Overnight Hydration Therapy.
There will always be a lot of brands proclaiming to relax and replenish, but ESPA is a true favourite. It never fails to work as a calming skincare support and will remain my go-to as a tried and tested preference. I have ESPA SOS kits in the bathroom and bedside table, with this new travel set now ready for adventures too.
